Review & Giveaway: Sore Throat Relief

PhotobucketBeing sick is the worst! When I am ill, I am miserable and I know for a fact that those around me end up miserable as well. I know this will probably come as a shock to everyone, but I'm not a pleasant person when I don't feel good.  I just want everyone to leave me alone until I wake up feeling like my good-old self. 

While getting better is my main goal, I have to admit that in the moment I just want something to help me deal with the symptoms.  I have had my fair share of sore throats and one thing I am extremely thankful for is throat drops. 

Luden's drops have been around for more than 130 years.  I recently tried out their new orange drops that not only soothe your throat, they also help you get better.  How can they do this?  By giving you 100% of your daily Vitamin C supply in one lozenge!  They taste great, probably because they are made with real orange juice.  They offer a variety of flavors, including sugar-free.  Right now you can print off a coupon to save $1 off of any two bags of Luden's throat drops.

PhotobucketLuden’s Throat Drops are available in 14-count packs with a suggested retail price of $.99 and bags of individually wrapped drops for $1.79.

Another must-have product to help you cope with a cold or flu is the Chloraseptic Warming Sore Throat Lozenges.  I recently had a sore throat so severe that I didn't want to swallow.  Luckily, I was able to pop one these bad boys in my mouth.  The relief was almost instant.  The warming effect took place right away and I could feel it soothing every part of my throat.






PhotobucketChloraseptic Warming Sore Throat Lozenges are available in an 18-ct package for $3.99.

My poor nephew had strep throat about a month ago and I wanted nothing more than to take away all of his pain.  Unfortunately, at that time I did not know about the new Chloraseptic Sore Throat Lollipops.  I ended up trying one myself just to see how they worked.  Yes, they are for kids but I'm a big kid at heart, so it applies.  


Chloraseptic Sore Throat Lollipops are available in a 10-ct package and have a suggested retail price of $3.99

Save $1 off any Chloraseptic product by printing out a coupon.

  27. My grampy's cough syrup: boil one cup molasses with 1/4 cup cider vinegar until firm ball forms in icewater. Eat mixture while it's still warm. For Flu, add 1/2 diced raw onion. It worked!
